Frederick Douglass Distinguished Scholars Program


The FDDS program offers a scholarship that provides full tuition, mandatory fees, books, U-Pass, room, and board. Historically underrepresented minority students and students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to first-generation student leaders. While we encourage applications from all ambitious, well-rounded student leaders, the most competitive applicants will have a minimum 3.8 GPA (unweighted) or 4.0 GPA (weighted). Submission of ACT or SAT scores are optional.
